Flooding hits gale-lashed Christchurch

NZHerald    By Matthew Backhouse, March 5, 2014.

Thousands of homes remain without power and schools and roads are closed this morning as flooding causes more problems for storm-lashed Christchurch.

The council says it is the worst rain storm in almost 40 years, with up to 100 houses across the city believed to be affected by flooding.

Firefighters have attended some 300 incidents in Canterbury since the southerly storm picked up yesterday morning, smashing windows, bringing down trees and power lines and lifting roofs.
